Meaning and history

Skyscanner Logo history

2002 – 2006

Skyscanner Logo 2002
The original Skyscanner logo was based on an emblem featuring three arrows. The arrows started in a single point in the middle and were oriented towards three different directions. In fact, it looked like the middle part of the Peace sign turned upside down.
Next to the emblem, there was the name of the brand in a sans serif type. The first three letters were dark blue (like the emblem) and capitalized, while the lettering “Scanner” was grey and was set in lowercase letters. The color and the case helped to create a visual border between the two parts of the words.

2006 – 2008

The arrow symbol grew smaller, but it still was higher than the wordmark. The logo now featured a single color, a shade of blue that was lighter and brighter than the one on the previous version.
The type was still a sans serif one, but now it featured glyphs of a slightly different shape.

2008 – 2012

This one looks almost the same as the previous one, with only subtle modifications in the shape of the glyphs and the emblem (for instance, the arrows have grown thicker, while the “y” has a more rounded end).

2012 – 2015

The era of the cloud logo started. Originally, the cloud was of a bright and light color close to aqua. The wordmark in black was italicized.

2015 – 2019

The previous logo featured a wordmark in all the lowercase letters executed in an italicized sans-serif typeface, with enough space between the letters. The famous Skyscanner emblem was placed above the inscription and depicted a bright blue cloud with three curved lines, forming a rainbow.

2019 – Today

Skyscanner Logo
The Skyscanner visual identity was last changed in 2019 and has nothing left from the previous version, which was very recognizable logo design.
The new Skyscanner logo is composed of a wordmark with an emblem on its left. The lettering of the nameplate now has the first “S” capitalized and the tail of the “k” curved. The sans-serif typeface of the inscription looks friendly and strong.
It depicts an arched line with five verticals, coming out of it, symbolizing sunrise. The company wanted to show its progressive approach and to add a friendly and welcoming feeling to its visual identity.
The blue color of the Skyscanner logo became darker and more intense. Not the company’s logo looks more professional and reflects the reliability and stability of the famous online platform.
